The easiest way I know of is to rpm -Uvh --oldpackage the list of 33
packages (with full file names or URLs for each).

kdebase-workspace, but it'll also need at least newer kdelibs and
kdebase-runtime, probably more newer stuff.

Yes, the problem is always to know what the subset is. ;-) And by the way,
kde* may not be it. You have been warned.

We're going to push 4.2.1 out to stable shortly, it may be worth waiting if
you're nervous about trying out updates-testing.
